A firefighter was seriously injured in a blaze at a building in Newark's North Ward late Saturday, officials said.

The firefighter was hospitalized in critical condition, according to Newark Public Safety Director Anthony Ambrose, who was at the hospital.

Emergency crews remained at the scene, near Park and Bloomfield avenues, shortly before 11 p.m. The blaze was not yet declared under control, a public safety department spokeswoman said late Saturday night. 

The building that burned was listed online as Velez Tire and Auto Repair.

Wind chill values reached between zero and 5 degrees as crews worked at the scene.

More information was not immediately available from authorities, but video of the blaze has emerged and can be viewed below:
